From a former outlaw biker Whether you’re into dirt bikes, road bikes, ride a Yamaha, scooter or Laverda, if you’ve ever experienced the primal rush of riding a motor bike, the pain of crashing, the suffering of healing and the epiphanies of speed, then this book is for you. A collection of yarns that tell the story of a life lived on two wheels, My Mother Warned Me About Blokes Like Me is about brotherhood, treachery, girls in tight pants and motorcycles that have been possessed by Satan. It’s also about impossible highs and soul-crushing lows, being cold and crazy and racing 1000 kilometres through the night for money and thrills.

A survivor from a world that no longer exists

NEW

In 1939, on his 13th birthday, the Nazis invaded Poland. Sam Pivnik survived the two ghettoes set up in his home town of Bedzin and six months working on the processing ramp at Auschwitz, where prisoners were either taken away for entry to the camp or gassing. After this harrowing experience, he was sent to work at the brutal Furstengrube mining camp. He could have died on the ‘Death March’ that took him west as the Third Reich collapsed, and he managed to swim to safety when the Royal Air Force mistakenly sank the prison ship Cap Arcona in 1945. On 14 occasions he should have been killed, yet now in his 80s, Sam tells the story of his life, a tale of survival against the most extraordinary odds. Softcover • 320 pages •

Includes historically fascinating photos and images David ‘Digger’ Barrett was given his nickname as an early age by his father. It would prove prophetic: as an 18-year-old looking for fun and adventure, he enlisted as a private and served in World War II. After surviving the Malayan campaign, he would spend over three years as a Japanse POW, and it would take him fifty more years to rid his mind of the hatred he had for the Imperial Japanese Army. Exemplifying the Australian spirit and providing some fascinating insights into Australian history, Digger’s Story is an account that takes him from the prison camps of Thailand and Burma to the fight for reparation for all Japanese POWs. It’s also a remarkable story of courage, mateship and redemption. Photos & images •
